Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear. This well-worn adage rings true around these parts, and guides the itinerary of your tour and the sequence of libations. Charleston boasts a distillery scene seeped in spirits that are smooth on the taste buds and sweet to the soul. Lowcountry residents and visitors alike can find their perfect concoction to unwind after a long day or to amp up the party vibes. We’ll help you to decide which Charleston area distillery your group would most like to visit, as each uses a unique blend of locally-sourced ingredients to create unique beverages with distinct flavors. Our calling card is to fill your glass with specialty bourbon, rum, moonshine, and other spirits –– so feel free to knock back a shot or two (who’s counting, anyway?). Don’t forget you still have two Charleston Brewery stops ahead, so enjoy your crafted spirits accordingly and responsibly.
Breweries in Charleston truly deliver where others fall short. Our local brewers pour distinctive craft beers, ones that you really want to drink, into your glass. Locally brewed favorites like “Washout Wheat” and “Hell or High Watermelon” were crafted to give beer drinkers a range of selections with a unique Charleston flair. The first pint is on us, as Crafted Travel opens the door for you to safely sample an assortment of handcrafted brews. An unwritten rule on our beer tour is to muster the courage to step out of your tasting zone; if you tend to lean toward blonde ales or lagers, shake things up by sampling a porter, sour, or stout. In the final stop of the Charleston Brewery Tour, things really get interesting. You’ll get to experience and appreciate the creative artistry of the brew master through a rich and intricate palette of flavors, con moto!

If you’re not ready to call it quits, the festivities don’t have to end with beer! You can choose to finish your epic tour downtown at Lewis Barbecue, where you can enjoy an unforgettable meal and another pint. Your visit here comes at an additional fee, but may be the most perfect way to end a day of indulgence. After all, beer and barbecue go together like peas and carrots, and you will savor every mouthwatering bite, washed down with a sip of refreshing brew.
